Terry Fox is a big inspiration to me as a runner because it shows me the amount of perseverance he had. He was running a marathon a day with only one leg. I can't even run a marathon itself with 2 legs. Terry is also such an inspiration to anyone with a disability that is in the way of what they want to do. Now whenever I'm running and I want to stop because I'm tired, I'll think of Terry and think of what it would be like to only have one leg and hopefully that will persevere me to keep going.
